X-Ray Radiology

When your veterinarian needs more information for diagnostic purposes, they may call for x-rays. X-rays provide views of the musculoskeletal system, and work by passing x-ray waves through the body, and taking snapshots of their distribution. X-rays are a completely safe and non-invasive procedure, and are useful for diagnosing fractures, tumors, infections, and deformities. They are often used in both routine and emergency procedures.

At Broadway Veterinary Clinic, we use digital x-rays instead of traditional film x-rays for the benefit of our patients. The benefits of digital x-rays include:

  • Better quality images that allow the veterinary radiologist to make a more informed diagnosis
  • They can be taken faster, which is helpful for antsy or nervous pets
  • Digital x-ray images can be sent electronically to another specialist if need be
  • Images can be easily stored on an electronic database for future use

In the majority of cases, there is no need for your pet to be sedated while taking x-rays. We simply will lie them down so the area we need is exposed, and try to keep them calm by stroking them and talking to them in a soothing manner.
